90% Syrah & 10% Viognier. 12.5% abv. From the importer: "Former Guigal assistant Jean-Michel Stephan’s modest domaine consists of eight acres of mostly old vines in various parcels in Côte Rôtie’s southern sector. His holdings include a high percentage of prized Sérine, the expressive, small berry ancestor of Syrah. The majority of the domaine’s vines are in two perfectly-situated hillside lieux-dits: the Côteaux de Tupin and the Côteaux de Bassenon. Jean-Michel’s home and cellar are in the tiny village of Tupin-Semons at the base of the Côteaux de Tupin. The Bassenon site is on the southern border of the appellation next to Condrieu. With the sure-footedness of a mountain goat, Jean-Michel tends these steep hillside vineyards without the use of chemicals. He is a disciple of Jules Chauvet, France's legendary father of natural winemaking. His classic Côte Rôtie is a blend of Syrah and Viognier from various parcels, but he also isolates the domaine’s two distinct terroirs in separate, limited-production bottlings." 12.5% abv.
